Rosario would be a good fit, as well as Conforto.
The Cardinals see Liberatore as an outside shot for the rotation next spring, but he's probably a year away. Gorman was signed to be the power-hitting third baseman of the future, which, with the minor league seasons having been scrubbed, leaves him at least one year, if not two, away. I wouldn't trade him for just any hitter. Now, if Arenado's name came up, and the Cardinals had some means of payroll relief, that's different.
Too much. Two of the three maybe.
Edman leading the team in RBIs while hitting second says a lot about the offense. I liked what I saw of Carlson when he came back and I would hit him in front of Goldschmidt, either second ahead of Goldschmidt's third, or third ahead of Goldschmidt's fourth.
Bryant is going to be available but probably to the hated rival Cardinals.
The money goes to the team. Ballpark Village is a separate entity from the club, although, of course, related.
How loudly did he say it? Was he shouting?
All I'm saying is that you might be able to get Polanco for not very much in return. It would be a low risk move that I would try to make.
If the Cardinals had any reason to believe Mikolas won't be ready, they might reconsider but, otherwise, that ship is out to sea.
There always is a possibility of a shortened season, after what happened this year. There truly are no surprises any more when it comes to baseball.
Probably not. But it wasn't as if the Mets were close to competing when they had Conforto.
I'm saying Fowler is a starter now, but that doesn't mean I can't try to improve there, too. He did have some recurring health issues this year and tailed off at the end of the season when he returned from the IL.
The Cardinals don't really have any prominent free agents, other than Wong, who would be one if the club didn't pick up his option. Wieters would be a free agent again.
If Bader could hit .250 with his power and speed and defense, he would be here a long time. But he has shown little or no inclination to shorten his swing or bunt to raise both his batting average and OBP.
He's still on the 40-man roster, so I can't say it's over. But he's not in the mainstream as evidenced by his absence from the postseason roster.
